Call us by our names!
Not by the failed attempt at humor in pathetic insults aimed at us because we are vile and disgusting.
Call us by our names!
You call us strange, abnormal, unafrican because we love who we love in a definition of love you cannot accept because you have boxed yourself with a religion that tells you that man must love woman who must not love woman but must love man who can never love man.
Call us by our names!
Us who you have said do not exist!
Us that are suffering from the white man’s disease, us that you have tried to wipe from history.
Call us by our fucking names!
We are your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives.
We are the congregations in your churches, we are the soldiers in your army, we are the most diligent workers in the state’s service.
We are more than the ambiguous, vague, seemingly nonexistent L-G-B-T, we are here, we are blood, and we are Africans, pure and strong so call us by our fucking names!

You may not want to refer to someone as “queer” unless you know that’s how they identify themselves. When talking to someone about their sexual orientation, use the terms that they use. It’s okay (and often encouraged!) to ask what labels folks prefer.
Different factors build up a relationship, Love,sex and Money are part of these, which is important, which can a relationship live or exist without , what can you manage ?? Love is key, Sex is awesome and money is cogent .. Let's talk
